Hey all - I’m setting up my first draft/kegging system, and am still ironing out some kinks. So, last night I was sanitizing a couple kegs that I was planning on filling tonight. When I had the kegs about half full of sanitizer, I was shaking them up and holding them upside down to get the SanStar distributed over all surfaces. The kegs were leaking around the lid. I put new O-rings on prior to the sanitizing, so that’s not the problem.
I’m wondering if adding CO2 pressure to my kegs will solve this problem. I fear it will not, I am pissed off thinking I bought some defective kegs.
I know the obvious response is “hook them up and test them”, but my tank is empty right now… and I won’t have a chance to refill for a while.
What do you guys think?
